I need investment to buy stock of the leggings more economically and to source a sustainable supplier, market the leggings via Social media.

New stretch target

I want to research and secure a sustainable supplier for the leggings. I have been looking at suppliers in Bali and bamboo suppliers who can print my designs on the fabric and create the leggings.


I have my colourful floral paintings made into yoga wear using a small factory in Montreal who currently do not offer an eco fabric for my leggings. It  costs me a lot in customs and delivery for these to be sent to UK customers so my margins for profit are zero and I'm not profitable at present even though I've sold quite a few as they are popular. I need to order in bulk to make it profitable. Ideally the larger target will help me to source a factory that has sustainable ethics and offers a softer more eco fabric such as bamboo or eco cotton/jersey. The aim of investment is to build a store of sample stock and then market and sell online. I currently have a Shopify site but it's on pause until I can use the investment to be able to cover the costs of making the website go live again. The investment will also provide a small budget for Facebook and Instagram ads to market them. I want to support women feeling comfortable and confident  in themselves whatever their size and my leggings are very popular because they stretch and hold but also look great. They come in funky colours for children's sizes too. I have support from yoga teachers who wear them and love the colours and fit. I’m looking forward to a photo shoot coming up with a photographer who is keen to showcase them in a local magazine here in Sussex. My goal is eventually to make sustainable yoga leggings for the eco buyer.
